The last few weeks we have noticed a pattern with US Airways / American fares to the Caribbean. Every so often, they would release a fare at 4PM and by the morning the Aruba fare would be raised. In other words, jump on this! As always, unless you are traveling within the next 7 days, you have 24 hours to cancel risk free so buy, then plan.
This fare has Winter availability. Plan those Winter beach getaways now — its going to be a cold one.
